Source of omega 3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA) for the maintenance of good health. Helps support the development of the brain, eyes, and nerves in children and adolescents.
The body needs an adequate intake of healthy fats in order to support the health of the brain, cardiovascular system, skin, and joints. This is particularly important for children and adolescents who are learning, growing, and rapidly forming new tissues. Omega 3 is one of the families of healthy fats that are essential, meaning they must come from your diet by eating fatty fish several times a week, or by taking supplements. The active compounds in omega 3 are DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and they are primarily found in fish. DHA, because of its link to brain and behaviour, is of particular interest to children and adolescents. Many children do not eat the amount of oily fish, such as salmon, tuna and mackerel, necessary to supply their needs. A supplement specially formulated for children is a safe and reliable way to ensure they get these crucial nutrients when they need them the most.
